Spitzer Space Telescope
IRAC
Ultraviolet/Visible Camera
6019x6019x3
This image from NASA's Spitzer and GALEX shows the Helix nebula, a dying star throwing a cosmic tantrum. In death, the star's dusty outer layers are unraveling into space, glowing from the intense UV radiation being pumped out by the hot stellar core.

Spitzer Space Telescope
5000x2812x3
This composite of the giant barred spiral galaxy NGC 6872 is 522,000 light-years across, making it about five times the size of the Milky Way.

GALEX Telescope
1500x1500x3
This image from NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) shows Messier 94, also known as NGC 4736, in ultraviolet light. It is located 17 million light-years away in the constellation Canes Venatici.

GALEX Telescope
1650x1650x3
This image from NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer shows NGC 6744, one of the galaxies most similar to our Milky Way in the local universe.

Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE)
GALEX Telescope
WISE Telescope
1302x818x3
Evidence from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer and Galaxy Evolution Explorer missions provide support for the 'inside-out' theory of galaxy evolution, which holds that star formation starts at the core of the galaxy and spreads outward.
